._. Doesn't 2 have to be by the parentheses for me to distribute?
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
You distribute the negative. So negative times x becomes -x
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
Do you get it?

So would that be 1+5x-40≤2-x+5?

Kinda...
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
It would be negative 5 since you're multiplying by a negative
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay, so 1+5-40≤2-x-5...
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
Yes. Now combine like terms.

How do I do that if both X's are on opposite sides? ._. I apologize, I'm really bad in math.
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
It's fine. On the right side you can combine the 2 and -5
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
What did you get?

okay, 1+5x-40≤-x-3
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
Now on the left side you can combine 1 and -40

5x-39≤-x-3
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
You're trying to get x by itself so you have to add x to both sides

6x-39≤-3
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
Good. Now you add 39 to both sides.
anonymous

6x≤36
cookiemonster2412
  • cookiemonster2412
Yes! Now to get x by itself you divide both sides by 6
